Your firebox must withstand extremely high temperatures, and this heat can wear down the masonry materials from which it is constructed. Not only are crumbling bricks and mortar joints unattractive, they can also pose safety hazards as heat can transfer through the gaps created by the damaged masonry to combustibles that surround it. According to the Chimney Safety Institute of America (CSIA), this can lead to the risk of carbon monoxide leaking through the gaps into your home. Chim Cheree The Chimney Specialists can make your firebox safe again with our rebuilding services. We will inspect the condition of your firebox, and we can either make repairs or do a rebuild. If you need a new firebox, we will remove the damaged old one and rebuild a new one, brick by brick. We only use the best refractory mortar and firebricks to construct a durable and safe firebox for your home.

Masonry Restoration

Your chimney can suffer from masonry damage as well, and it is important to take care of repairing deteriorated bricks and mortar joints in your chimney, especially before colder weather arrives. When you have cracked and missing bricks, water can easily get into your chimney through these gaps. Water leaks can cause extensive and expensive damage to your home, which is why it is so crucial to repair damaged masonry. Chim Cheree The Chimney Specialists provides experienced masonry restoration services that will ensure the structural soundness of your chimney. Our chimney masons use techniques like tuckpointing to remove damaged mortar with specialized tools and replace the damage with new masonry materials that match the existing chimney. If your chimney is in such bad condition that it needs rebuilding, we can help you with that as well. You can trust us to build a new chimney that will meet all local and state building codes. This could also be your opportunity to change the style of your fireplace and chimney to get the look you have always wanted.
Even if your fireplace or chimney is not damaged, we can bring your hearth into the 21st century. Contact us at Chim Cheree The Chimney Specialists to find out more about our fireplace rebuild and renovation options.
